RBJ 25th Anniversary Edition

A look back. A look ahead.  

The first weekly print edition of the Rochester Business Journal appeared in October 1987. To mark the paper's 25th anniversary, we have produced a commemorative edition -- a 112-page, glossy publication that chronicles the events, individuals and trends that have made an impact on Rochester and the local business community over the past quarter century. It also includes a section that looks forward, focusing on the forces that could influence the community over the next 25 years.
